“Ask for me tomorrow and you will find me a grave man” – Mercutio
I thought it was because their work wasn’t in the Bible….
Situational awareness and deep thought are seldom found together.
A bird in the hand wouldn’t have given the push.
The great physicists don’t stand under anything bigger than an apple
Darwin was at work even back then.
Newton’s First Law of Motion.
The real question is how that boulder came to be precariously perched there in the first place. Shades of Wile E. Coyote.
in both cases, he left out the most important part “unless acted up by an unbalanced force” ie, the bird. no points for a half effort
Sir Issac Newton will have better luck in the future. He’ll just get a headache.
The laws of physics are enforced with severe penalties.
" A body at rest will remain at rest ". Sounds like me
“Rock on, dude!” Or is that “Rock, on dude”??
I never knew seagulls laid such big eggs.
That is a lead up worthy of Stephan Pastis.
Saw THAT one coming!
Inertia was not getting off his butt.
Nicholas Wade (former NYTimes science guy): Newton’s theory turned out to be a “special case” of Einstein’s (which itself is subject to change), just as the Ptolemaic was of the Copernican. Darwin’s is but another “grand narrative” of observation, subject to change as is any scientific scenario. "Creationists insist evolution is only a theory, Dawkins (the “Savonarola of science”) that it’s only a fact. Neither claim is correct."
Whoever, the next guy is that thinks of ‘inertia’ will do well to think it through and add the “unless the object is acted upon by an unbalanced force.” Arghh! Math on Sunday. My aching head…
Entropy is speeding up.
When the lord gets ready, you got to move.
I had a girl land in my lap one day, married her. Does that count?
He missed the part about “unless acted upon by an external force”
“..unless or until acted upon by an outside force.”
You’ll never discover anything if you’re stoned.
The Laws of Physics and Math are NOT Universal since they don’t work on every Quantum Level. But they are certainly valid in the one in which we spend our lives.
Isaac Newton used the social distancing & self-quarantining from London’s Black Death Plague of 1666 to discover The Calculus. So . . . what are you doing ?
In Mark Twain’s Letters from the Earth there’s a section on “Papers of the Adam Family” in which Eve expresses her irritation that Adam never got proper credit for discovering the Law of Downhill Water Flow. Somebody had to be the first to notice it, but now everybody just takes it for granted.
Science goes ‘BLORT!’
Common sense tends to be lacking in many really smart people.
There are 2 kinds of people. Them that move and them that wish they had a analyze the situation a little better
So, why is it that Wile E. Coyote (and other classic cartoon characters) can violate the Law of Gravity every time they sail off a cliff (or other high precipice) and hover for an inordinate amount of time before finally falling?
They never studied Law.
Sounds a lot like Congress
A Smarter Physicist would have moved as soon as he realized the Bird was using him for Target Practice.
Trumped by the 2nd Law
He didn’t know about the law of gravity, but then he never studied law.
Great pun, Gronk!
Too bad that’s not Trump under there.
Droll…VERY droll! Congratulations, Wiley: A pun that needs no apology!
